How long does it take to make my picture?

In our product or category descriptions, you will find the average production times or the exact printing dates and deadlines for data submission.

I am unsure if the size of my image is sufficient. What can I do?

We check your data for the appropriate resolution for the desired size and whether the image proportions fit. If there are any problems or ambiguities, we will contact you.

What is the exact ordering process?

You either order your image in our online store Berlinprint.de or send us the file via our individual order with the appropriate info and your wishes noted.

For both order options, after we have successfully reviewed your data, you will receive an e-mail containing our invoice with the payment terms and informing you of the expected completion or shipping date.

If you have paid our invoice in advance, you can come to pick up your print at any time during our business hours from the completion date. Payment on site is possible by German EC card or cash. For staff reasons, however, we are happy if you have already paid in advance. This is possible by bank transfer or Paypal.

If your data is not readily printable, we will contact you in advance to inquire.

Can I pick up my print in person?

You can come to our retail store in Berlin-Friedrichshain for collection at any time from the notified completion date during our business hours from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5:30 pm.

How much does it cost to have a photo printed?

Prices for printing a photo start at 30 x 20 cm with 4,02 EUR. The printing price always depends on the chosen material and the size of the image. The resolution of your photo has an influence on which sizes are still well printable.

What format to print photos?

The aspect ratio of the photo should match the aspect ratio of the format to be printed. Many cameras take photos in the aspect ratio of 3:2 or 4:3. This results, for example, in a photo in the format 30 x 20 cm or with the 4:3 aspect ratio the format 40 x 30 cm. Optimal photo file FORMATS are jpg files, as these are not too large due to their compression and are therefore easy to send. But also png and tif are possible.

How can I print pictures from my cell phone?

You can email pictures from your smartphone directly to us on demand and have them printed on high-quality photo paper. Or you can upload your photos to be printed via our webshop during the order process.

Backlit film for backlighting, print luminous images for indoor and outdoor

We offer 3 variants - all on a high-gloss backlit film for backlighting photographs and other motifs such as advertising in light boxes or illuminated frames indoors and outdoors:

Variant 1: Our glossy polyester backlit film for permanent backlighting is suitable for both the Suitable for indoor and outdoor use and is printed with Epson EcoSolvent inks in the highest color density and print resolution. These printed illuminated images should be permanently backlit, as they appear too dark when unlit.

Variant 2: Alternatively and also for the We print outdoor and indoor areas with matt, waterproof UV-curable inks on the same glossy and scratch-resistant polyester film. This backlit print printed with UV inks can also be used unlit, but the backlighting is slightly brighter than unlit.

Variant 3 (see full illustration) below): As a third variant, UV printing can also be printed with a white intermediate layer, i.e. color-white color. This means that the colors always look the same both in backlighting and unlit. This backlit variant is more expensive than variants 1 and 2 due to the higher number of print runs.

Technical differences: The Epson EcoSolvent printing is only suitable for permanent illumination, unlit it is virtually "too dark" to be seen optimally when backlit. The UV printing is also suitable for unlit applications, as it only needs to be printed relatively slightly darker, but the color saturation is slightly increased. It should not be too strongly illuminated so that the colors do not appear too bright. Additionally, as a third variant, the UV printing also with a white intermediate layer printed, i.e. color-white-color. This means that the colors always look the same, whether backlit or unlit.

- Print quality: Epson printing = perfect print image in FineArt quality, must be backlit, UV printing = very good poster quality, but not as fine as variant 1, well suited for advertising applications or perfect for 3-layer printing for all lighting situations
- Print width: up to 135 cm
- If required, all Backlit varieties can be equipped with a self-adhesive front or back for indoor use (for an additional charge)

Fabrication time: Standard is 3 working days, UV printing approx. 6 AT

Variant 3: UV printing on backlit film, printed with a white intermediate layer = color-white-color.

The backlit version shown here is more expensive than versions 1 and 2 due to the higher number of print runs. The three print layers ensure that the colors always look the same, whether backlit or unlit.

Backlit films are normally printed in a single pass and with a higher color saturation. This has the effect that they only look perfect when backlit. Without lighting, they are often too dark. Or you have to find a compromise in terms of opacity, as in our backlit variant 2 - see description above.

The example backlit print motif shown here is from: www.caos-conzept.de, www.instagram.com/caosconzept/

Backlit film in UV printing in 3-layer printing, 1st color layer is printed

1st color layer = the motif was printed on the backlit film with UV ink. Up to this point, this corresponds to our backlit print variant 2.

Backlit film in UV printing in 3-layer printing, 2nd color layer (white) is printed

2nd color layer = white is printed over the colored motif and then almost covers it.

Backlit film in UV printing in 3-layer printing, 3rd color layer = motif is printed on the white again

3rd color layer = the colored motif is now printed over the white intermediate layer again.
